Peony season in Paris

OMG!  These pictures are so so amazing.  Peony season in Paris?! How amazing would it be to see this?   My mother has two Peony bushes in front of her house that have been there since before I was born.  I remember them as a little girl when the house was my grandparents home.  When they bloom they are around for about a week before they wilt.  They come and go so quickly.  My mom always takes them to my grandparents grave site as soon as they bloom.  They are one of my all time favorite flowers.  Probably in part because of the sentimental aspect.  I might be in love with the bright pink ones below though!  I might be searching around town for a bush with blooms that color. 


  1. Cool blog. Love your story about the peonies. Gosh you're right that color is spectacular. The bare root bush I planted 3 years ago is just about to bloom and I can't wait!

  2. My mothers two bushes just barely started to bloom this last week. Must be late because of the cold weather all up in Utah. They are so so beautiful!

  3. It's my dream to have those many blooms in my garden.
